Welcome to Islamic Center of Maine! The Muslim community in Orono is a vibrant one and its Masjid hosts several activities throughout the week and all year around. Members from nearby cities attend filling nearly half of the main prayer hall. Five prayers are held in congregation every day. Weekly halaqas of Tafseer and Hadith are held for both brothers and sisters. In addition to this every Sunday an Arabic Halaqa is held for brothers. Community potlucks and Qiyam are held once a month. The Islamic weekend school is conducted every Sunday from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. In Ramadan, Iftar, Magrib prayers, and Taraweeh are held every day. During the summer, activities such as sports and community picnics are also arranged. Community outreach projects have been initiated and are developing (inshallah). We present to the community at large through outreach to educational facilities, such as schools, universities, hospitals and religious institutions; in addition to interfaith dialogue. Members of the ICM community regularly work with the Muslim Student Association (MSA) at UMaine to provide awareness of Islam and Muslims on campus.
